Emily’s workshop…helped equip me with new ways of approaching cross-cultural issues. I would recommend her trainings and expertise to anyone who is looking to problem-solve with teams made up of people from different countries.

-Michael Lutomski, Safety & Mission Assurance Risk Manager at NASA (USA)

The training effectively helped our clients learn to identify waste of resources when cultural context isn’t taken into account in addition to providing  the framework and tools to function at the nexus of efficiency and effectiveness by addressing barriers to collaboration. I was personally impressed by her ability to create spaces for our clients to surface underlying tension within the group dynamic.
